About this book

Looks at how non-human animals process information from their environment and contains chapters on animal navigation (including homing behaviour and migration), animal communication methods and research into animal language, and attempts to teach language to non-human animals. A chapter on memory includes models of memory in non-human animals and discusses the importance of memory in navigation and foraging behaviour.

'This book fulfils its promise to provide the necessary information for a solid A-level... the core information is presented in a very accessible style.' - Britta Osthaus, University of Exeter
